    So they are your first time then? How did you like them for your first time? I Loved them. The more grease you use, the more crispy they get, Just leave them a little longer to crisp up real good, the part I hate is flipping cause it's harder to get the top crisp unless you got enough grease in the skillet to cover the bottom again. Mom fixed them for breakfast all the time. With some over medium eggs and toast.


    Thanks, It's also VERY Tasty. My mother used to fix it all the time. And now I fix it for breakfast just about everytime we have leftover Mashed Taters!
